    My last post on this site.
    Congratulations to Jenn, I wish her the absolute best for the future and much success.
    If she ever comes here, I hope they don't lock the topic while she's typing. Again.

    Hmmm ..... what happened to HYOH?
  3. If the caretaker did "exactly the right thing"...

    If the caretaker did "exactly the right thing" for Sly then he did not do
    "exactly the right thing" for the person that came through a few days later.
    That seems to be one thing irking Sly, as it...

    This is obviously set up for things like planned family vacations,
    ala Griswolds, and not the independent section hiker. It should
    therefore only apply to the family vacation type of sites and not...

    I Googled BPL and it's a lot of things.
    I am pretty sure I posted a link here though.

    That is one story-book-cute motel in that photo, let me tell you.
    Places like that should make the scenic register.

    The situation I described is that they won't (and don't) toss people (out) into the snow, but that they probably won't feed you for free.

    It makes me wonder what the real intention in this is.
    It doesn't seem to be revenue, since that will be self-consuming.

    THIS IS SO WRONG. They are counting on the hikers not making any waves on this issue because most of us prefer to avoid political confrontation.

    Time then to change that.
    Not here but where...

    Has anyone validated the poster who claims to be part of "The Family from the North"?
    The way things are today, the poster could be funning with us.

    when the perception is " I paid someone to take care of this....

    Lots of newcomers will expect things at "pay to stay" sites, like toilets,
    showers, tables, trashcans, etc. When they discover...

    OK, so it isn't the Boston Public Library. I found it anyway.

    Basically, you have a bunch of gear heads at a loss to comment on her gear,
    which was not the focus of her feat, so they are pretty...

    That's funny.

    No wait, It isn't. It's scary.

    President Obama's FY12 budget request, if approved by Congress,
    would give the National Park Service a $2.9 billion budget, an increase
    of nearly $138 million above current funding levels. That...

    It's one way to cope with the stress of such positive news.
  17. Is there anything in the Appalachian Trail...

    Is there anything in the Appalachian Trail charter (I think that's the right
    word but perhaps not) that governs or controls/regulates fees and other
    charges for hiking or camping overnight?

    I hadn't though that angle out completely.
    The AT is 100% Federal land.
    They (the Federal Government) can charge a usage (camping) fee.
    Of course, it would be for our own good. Our protection.
    Be...

    My whole point earlier is that we all DO pay, but that got seen as a political statement,
    so I can't really go into it any further. Anytime the government is involved, it's going to
    be political.

    Ron Haven is correct but it is irrelevant. While some people will defer travel,
    there are still so many people with the funds to do so, the parks get full.

    If the answer to the question asked is provided for by the posting of that link,
    I am (again) missing the obvious. I am sure it's me, and this is the style of the
    times to answering questions.

    Congratulations Jennifer on setting a new Supported AT Speed Record.
    I am confident someone will eventually post here to tell us what it is.
